I think some people don't understand why the default character limit in Pleroma is 5000. This isn't to make you actually write 5000 characters. The point is that you can stop thinking about the length of your post.

People these days are used to microblogging. They know how it works, they don't need arbitrary restrictions that only make them do the stupid "1/3" posts.

The RAM increased by 1% when I started erc 🤯

For many people, it would be fascinating that my laptop is consuming 433MB RAM, total.

Oh wow, adding flavor to was a bold call which worked out charmingly!

I wrote my thoughts on how far one can go about being FLOSS-only on android with custom ROMs and @fdroidorg

I would say pretty damn far!

Please ask questions, and suggest improvements!

I saw a post of an artist recreating his old drawings from when he was in high school and it inspired me to do the same! Here’s a piece from 1997, reimagined with my current skills, to prove I’m just as nerdy now as when I was 14.

I just merged a new mastodon.el release that should hit MELPA shortly. It includes a notifications timeline and profiles. Huzzah!

I #AmReading The Gene: An Intimate History and just found out that Pythagoras LEARNED the 'triangle theorem' later called the 'Pythagorean theorem' from Indian or Babylonian geometers. He didn't like... discover it himself.

Erasure of people that aren't white men is everywhere, even, apparently, in every math class I've ever taken.

I like "N is a Number – A Portrait of Paul Erdös"

There's also "Dangerous Knowledge", I think about Boltzmann, Cantor, and Gödel. Or "The Beautiful Mind of John Nash" (sic) the Documentary, not to be confused with the pop movie...

But you can find much more and deeper fun by looking for lectures, for example:

"A Tribute to Euler" – William Dunham:

Of these there are many more than I could put in a single toot, @codingquark!

Hi, if you see that I'm recently following you again, that's because I had a little accident and I need to rebuild my account. Follow me back if you still want to hear the things I have to say!

Would you recommend a video documentary/story on a mathematician? Thanks!
